Visual artist and filmmaker Bill Domonkos’ most recent work sees posts of GIFs to his Tumblr that combine scenes and imagery using special effects and editing.

Domonko places animated imagery on top of static archival images and film footage ensuring it comes from a refreshingly different angle using manipulation to experience a whole new form of GIF art.


Inspired by the obscure world of cinema, his mostly black and white work includes a still X-ray with a man doing pull-ups off its ribs and a jockey guiding his race horse through a bathroom sink.
